- 3. Ovulation predictor kits can be purchased at most drugstores as well as online

Moms Recommend These Brands Most
I use the Wal-Mart brand. They work great but I think they work best if you pee in a cup and dip it in.
I like the Wondfo brand that you can get on Amazon--they are cheap and work well. I would encourage you to try a couple different brands though, and see what works well for you. Some women don't have some brands work as well as others (for example, I had a positive OPK on Wondfo but the Wal-Mart brand wasn't quite positive yet with the same pee).
I use the Answer brand OPK. I have heard nothing but great things about Answer OPK.
My OPK of choice is Clearblue Easy; just the dye kind, not digital, because I really don't see spending that extra money just for it to show me a smiley face rather than a line.
First Response works better for me and with my body. It has been right on each day, where the others I have tried are very hard to read and get clear results.
I would suggest a Clearblue Easy Fertility Monitor. You can get them used on eBay.
Find Out Where Else You Can Buy OPKs
You should order your OPKs online. I only paid $18 for 20 tests and they work wonderfully!
I get internet cheapies from Clubmomma.com.
I got mine off eBay along with a bunch of pregnancy tests. The brand is Wondfo.
I purchased mine at Amazon.com. That's what I would recommend. I got 50 OPKs, and 10 hCG test strips for under $10. That's the best deal I found.
I bought a month's supply (20 strips) of the Target brand for $12.
